This is the reason I fear nothing will change next Tuesday. All the things you describe in the piece are the reasons for the surge in fascism. False American exceptionalism (we are hypocrites and fake as a $4 bill), pro- Whiteness associated with colonizing tendencies, more concerns about doing business than caring for all people equally, we refuse to discuss the role of race in the mix of global collapse, and cesspools of media refusing to call this moment in world history what it truly is are the reasons we are here.
A lot of us are going to pay for the selfishness and intolerance of the few. Sometimes losing is winning. This collapse is going to put people on the bottom who never thought the bottom was fashionable. Look to Greece for the best model yet as to what our collapse will look like.
